2004 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

bought it new for Xmas back in 03, couldn't resist the 0% APR offered by Toyota Financing. Anyway it'll be close to 10 years since then and I've driven it almost all over the PST/MST zones. City economy is never higher than 24, freeway cruising between 75-80 nets 29 and back-road cruising between 45-55 nets a high of 36. Yep 36 but I rarely drive that slow for that long so that almost never happens. I keep up with all the scheduled maintenance as a rule, change the oil every 3-4k miles and it just keeps on trucking. 200 lbs/ft tq is enough to carry a family of 5 from the coast to the peaks with a trunk full of luggage. And food. And a cooler too. I almost bought another 04 once, haha


Favorite Features

ride quality base stereo front AND rear legroom


Suggested Improvements

handles like a boat & turns like a cruise-ship, definitely not built for the twisties

2004 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Although the height of the interior is fairly short, the car provides an excellent amount of leg room. The dashboard is equipped with the standard settings with the max speed reaching to 110mph. To the right of the dashboard lies the music system, which includes CDs, cassettes, and radio, and beneath the music system is the heating and cooling controls. Being a car with auto transmission, the car is installed with an automatic-stick just to the right of the driver. Along with the automatic stick shift is the hill parking handle, and two cup holders for whatever drinks that the driver may have. Between the backrests of the passenger and driver seat is a small compartment to store misc. items.


Favorite Features

Interior design is fairly comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

No serious factor that needs improvement.

2004 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The V6 Camry is a wonderful car to drive. I have driven it for nearly 4 years and am very satisfied. Fuel economy is decent, cannot complain. I gave performance a 5 because of the delay when the gas is pressed a bit much, but sometimes noticeable even with calm acceleration (somewhat annoys me).


Favorite Features

Smooth compliant ride on the freeway.


Suggested Improvements

Too much body roll. V6 engine has a delay when gas is fully pressed. Lack of foglight option for LE model.

Review

I bought this car brand new in 2004 and drove about 45000 miles so far. No problem. Excellent in driving. Only drawback would be gas consumption compared to hybrids. If you are not planning to buy a new hybrid, this would be a excellent choice. Peace of mind.

2004 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased a 2004 LE V6 Camry used. Already have a 2001 LE V6. '04 model has a different body style that is vastly quieter and somewhat larger. The 04 was the first year for the 5 sp auto on the V6 and improves mileage on trips and decreases noise at high speeds, but the transmission shifting is much worse (and erratic) in the city than my 01. All TSBs have been applied. Dealer indicates it is operating as designed. Transmission also now requires Toyota fluid (vs Dextron 3 for 01). Ride seems somewhat smoother, but this is less noticable than the improvement in cabin noise. Rear doors are longer, making exit/entry more difficult. Trunk went from large to absolutely huge.


Suggested Improvements

Haven't tried an 05 or 06. I suspect the transmission shifting issues have been improved in later years.

2004 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Overall this is a nice car. This is my 1st Camry and I'm pleased with the car. I like the 5 speed even though is does hesitate when shifting. On the highway this is a sweet car and doesn't hesitate to go when you hit the pedal. I know one thing I will probably never go back to a american car brand the quality is no match and the design shows they thought everything out to benefit the consumer. I will definitely consider Toyota when the time comes to buy another car. It is fun to drive in nice weather with the sunroof open and the radio playing as you cruise down the road.


Favorite Features

Engine, upgraded stereo (200 Watt system) ABS four wheel disc brakes, sun roof, f &s airbags, large trunk, auto locking doors, power outside mirrors, remote trunk release & gas tank release,


Suggested Improvements

Heated outside mirrors, auto-dimming mirrors, power passenger seat, MP3 capability, remote radio/cd/cassette control, fog lights as an add on option, remote start - I added this as an aftermarket option.

2004 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have only had my LE-V6 for a couple of weeks but my last was a Saturn LW300 and you can't compare the two. This is my 5th Toyota and they have all been good, dependable autos. This latest Camry is smooth, powerful enough, quiet, comfortable and very easy to drive. My wife feels the same way about the car. So far no regrets. Dealer was great and worked the Edmunds figures perfectly. A very easy buy since I was well prepared to deal.


Favorite Features

The engine, ride, comfort, style and, so far, gas mileage - which has surprised me - and the dash layout, which is simple but functional.


Suggested Improvements

Auto dimming mirrow should be standard, as should side airbags. Would also like radio controls on steering wheel.

Review

Please Please don't buy this car LE/XLE/SE V6 especially 5A. It tons of problems (check the forums / reviews) : 1. Very Very Poor Acceleration even a compact car would leave you behind. 2. Bad Fuel ecomomy. 3. Lots of rattles which would never go away.


Favorite Features

Nothing Yet


Suggested Improvements

Buy Honda or Nissan

Review

This car is the most smooth ride i've ever been in. I love this car, its fast,quiet,smooth, and most of all powerful. By the way, the username JFlynn that bought the V4 Le was my Science teacher this year. How funny is that?


Favorite Features

power moonroof and keyless trunk entry


Suggested Improvements

Update the damn exterior look, the 2005 one only changed the colors of the taillight and the hubcaps for the V4 Le
